Paula Verboomen, office director of Milwaukee-based architecture and engineering firm HGA, has always been drawn to helping students.
A national training program aiming to attract high school students to construction and design careers more than doubled its enrollment during a second year in Milwaukee, and will start awarding scholarships.
For the first time ever, the Milwaukee affiliate of the ACE Mentor Program (Architecture, Construction, Engineering) successfully completed its first year-long session. This program, which officially launched in October 2017, paired local high school students and industry mentors to design a hypothetical project on the Marquette University campus. The teams gave their final presentations this past month in front of friends, families, school leadership, industry leaders and Milwaukee’s Mayor Tom Barrett.
